Day 3 #BeeMine- my 30 day blog challenge

Spring is in the air, so we managed to get an outdoor shot in a tweedy a line skirt. I love these cooler months, as it means I can wear shorter skirts paired with flattering thick tights, in fact these are cosy Thermal tights.

This Linton tweed mini skirt is fully lined and took under 4 hours to whip together. The perfect wardrobe builder!


You can find illustrated instructions to make your own A line mini in my book Fashion with Fabric available now. Please share your own versions using the Hashtag #BeeMine

Happy Stitching

    I love this skirt – cant wait to get my hands on the pattern!
    How many of the items in the book would you say are suitable for a beginner looking to improve their skillset?

      I’d say over half the projects are beginner friendly. So glad you like the skirt, it’s a fab easy sew, and as you’ve sewn the delphine, you’ll easily manage this
      happy Stitching:)
